Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2021 Week 08 Hansard (Tuesday, 3 August 2021) . . Page.. 2157 ..


Planning—Chisholm—petitions 10-21 and 11-21

By Mr Gentleman, Minister for Planning and Land Management dated 14 July 2021 in response to petitions lodged by Ms Burch on 20 April 2021 concerning the proposed development of Chisholm Village.

The response read as follows:

Dear Mr Duncan

Thank you for your letter of 20 April 2021 providing Petitions No 10-21 and 11-21 lodged by Ms Joy Burch MLA and received by the Assembly on 20 April 2021, regarding the development at Chisholm Village shops.

I note that related petitions 19-19, 22-19 and 12-20 have previously been received by the Assembly.

The recent proposed development at the Chisholm Village Shops has included Development Application (DA) 201935300 which involved two separate public notification and representation periods.

Many community members have expressed their views to the Government about the proposed development for the Chisholm shops. In considering matters including feedback received, I have declined the developer’s request for direct sale of a parcel necessary for the proposed development.

The Government is not involved in the operations of private leases at Chisholm Village Shops. However, in response to the current petitions, the Government recognises and has considered the many community representations and concerns with the proposed development. Any future government involvement with the Chisholm Shops will have regard to community concerns.

Thank you for providing these petitions to me.

Yerrabi electorate—Yerrabi Pond—petitions 5-21 and 14-21

By Mr Steel, Minister for Minister for Transport and City Services, dated 29 June 2021, in response to petitions lodged by Mr Pettersson on 20 and 23 April 2021 concerning proposed upgrades to Yerrabi Pond.

The response read as follows:

Dear Mr Duncan

Thank you for your letters dated 20 and 23 April 2021 regarding petitions 5-21 and 14-21 respectively, lodged by Mr Michael Pettersson MLA. Both petitions have requested improvements to the Yerrabi Pond recreation area, as such, my combined response to the petitions is detailed below.

In relation to the request for more facilities and upgrades to the playground, Transport Canberra and City Services (TCCS) recently sought community feedback, via a survey on the ACT Government’s YourSay website, on how people use the Yerrabi Pond recreation areas and suggested improvements.
